Tyler Walker was hospitalized but in good spirits after crashing and being airlifted off the Alpine skiing course at the Sochi Paralympics on Saturday.

Walker, 27, lost control during the sitting downhill race, flipped head over heels a few times at high speed and lay motionless on the snow before receiving medical attention.

Walker couldn’t remember the crash but didn’t break anything, according to his social media accounts.

Walker was slated to race the super-G on Sunday before his crash. He did not end up racing the event.

    Admire your spirit, Tyler! Hope to see you back on the slopes. Cannot imagine the amount of COURAGE this takes. Shows what a LOSER the other guy is each and every time he posts. Pathetic really. TYLER, man, you are a hero to many!
